Abstract

The paper discusses creative writing and its pedagogy in a Pakistani classroom.  The quantitative and qualitative data collected from the postgraduate students of a large public sector university– who are also in-service school teachers – determines that English teachers in Pakistan do not teach to develop the creative writing of pupils. The findings confirm that English teachers are confused about strategies required for rousing learners’ interest in creative writing. The teachers make their students memorise compositions from the textbooks to be reproduced in class. English teachers must be interested and trained to participate in activities that are vital for boosting creative writing in schools.
